The Bracers of Defense A.C. 3 give the wearer an Armor Class of 3; if they are wearing armor which gives a better AC., this item will have no effect. They have a weight of 2 lbs. and it can be worn by all classes. These are the most powerful bracers of defense, and they appear in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn.
|“||Bracers of Defense AC 3: Grinning Glen, the Knight of Fools, wore these bracers while competing in jousting tourneys. With his skill, charm, and bravado -- no man other than he would joust without armor -- he soon became a favorite to the ladies that watched the events. Too much of a favorite it would seem, for one afternoon he was caught frolicking with a knight's betrothed. A challenge was issued, but in his rush Glen forget to don his bracers. Glen died with a confused grin on his face as the knight's sword struck him, never knowing his own folly.||”|
